Honey Bun Cake

I first tasted this Honey Bun cake at a 4th of July cookout several years ago. I eagerly asked for the recipe and then filed it away and forgot all about it...until yesterday! I was excited to find it tucked away in my recipe box and knew I must give it a try.

Honey Bun Cake

1 yellow cake mix (with pudding included...I used Pillsbury)
8oz sour cream
4 eggs
2/3 cup oil
1/2 cup sugar

*Combine these 5 ingredients and beat for 2 minutes. Pour 1/2 of batter into a lightly greased and floured 9x13 pan.

1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

*Combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle half of sugar mixture over batter. Top with remaining batter. Sprinkle remaining sugar mixture on top. Swirl with a knife.

*Bake at 350 for 35 minutes

4 tablespoons milk
1 cup powdered sugar

*Mix the milk and powdered sugar together for a glaze. Add glaze to the cake as soon as it is removed from the oven.

What a yummy after-school treat on this rainy day.

This cake is a definite hit at our house. So melt-in-your-mouth moist and cinnamony-good! I'll be making this again SOON!
